I just got word from Marauder-John that I can release the line-up for Series 3 (no pics yet as he's still awaiting the reduced prototypes from the overseas factory- as soon as I have the pics I'll update this post
Here's the official unveiling, straight from the mouth of Marauder-John:
Here is the "official" list of the series #3 items. The candidate list for series 3 was getting so big (over 40 items), that split some of the items out for an earlier release. Otherwise, would have buried everyone with a HUGE release next spring, rather than keeping the releases smaller with "new" items available sooner. Series #1 had 11 items, Series #2 had 22 items and Series #3 will have 15 items. Series #3 could almost be called the "Dio-Series", because several of the items are "accessory" type items and not just weapons (perfect fodder for dioramas & dio stories). The items "round-out" the overall Marauder assortment and were all requested items. Will post images of all reduced prototypes in a few weeks (don't have all of them yet). If all stays on schedule, hope to have product by the end of September.Marauder "Gun-Runners"
-357 Magnum Pistol
-Luger Automatic Pistol
-Cell Phone ("Nokia" style)
-Beret (will fit the "average" sized head)
-Sawed off, Double Barrel Shotgun
-Tanker Helmet Microphone
-"Modified" British Sterling Submachine Gun (will have trigger & trigger guard)
-AK74 /47 Assault Rifle with Tactical Stocks, attached Bayonet and REMOVABLE Ammo Clip (will have trigger & trigger guard)
-AK74 /47 Assault Rifle with Tactical Stock & REMOVABLE Ammo Clip (Same as above, but no bayonet. Will have trigger & trigger guard)NOTE:
Extra Ak47 /74 ammo clips will be available separately. The AK in this series is based on the most "advanced & modern" version released in 2003. Bayonet was planned to be removable, but couldn't get the engineering to work. So made 2 styles (one with & one without bayonet). In addition, ALL pistols will have trigger guards going forward and the decision of trigger & trigger guards on larger weapons will be on a case by case basis. Marauder "Gun-Runners" 1:18 Scale A-10 Attack Jet The "Combat Raider" DARK BLUE
version of the A10 Warthog. Wingspan is over 25 inches and plane measures almost 24 inches long. Plane will be molded in DARK BLUE PLASTIC
(NOT painted), bombs will be black and jet will have working & STURDY landing gear. Will come with USAF decal sheet (to use as needed). The Dark Blue Marauder Jet is an exclusive version of the regular issue light gray USAF A10 (w/ green bombs) from PTE. The Dark Blue jet has a target price point of $40 or less and should be available in November.
Hope you all like what is in the "pipeline." Work continues on future releases, but wanted to be sure new items were available on a steady basis, lessen the wait between series and react to your requests as quick as possible...so pushed up the release of the "Dio-Series."
All the best!
